Compact Spares are Temporary Tires

Today, many automakers save space and weight by using compact spare tires with their late model vehicles. The compact tires take about half the space of a full-sized spare and have a lower weight. Compact spares are excellent for getting the vehicle off the road and to a repair shop or home.

Reading-area drivers use compact spares as a temporary replacement and not as long-term replacements. Compact tires are smaller than full-sized spares, and they have different load capacities than standard tires. When using compact tires, drivers must reduce speeds and drive with extra care.




Save money with Service by Ignoring Common Maintenance Myths

Breaking the 3,000-mile oil change rule instead following your owner’s manual guidelines is not only good for the Earth, but it also is great for your budget as well. A driver no longer has to be worried about going in every other week for a vehicle oil change. Now, they can get an oil changed quarterly and save themselves money to use towards other things such as tires or windshield wipers, which are important for any vehicle.
